From Adam to Earth Scientists in Training VII

ALTHOUGH WE ARE FAR OUT IN THE OCEAN, WE SOMETIMES SEE BIRDS - SEA BIRDS! AT NIGHTTIME, WE HAVE LIGHTS ON THE SHIP, SO SOMETIMES THEY ARE ATTRACTED TO THE SHIP. ALSO, SINCE WE ARE THE ONLY THING THAT ISN’T WATER, SOMETIMES BIRDS LAND ON THE SHIP TO REST.

THIS IS HIDETO HOLDING A BIRD THAT WAS ATTRACTED TO THE LIGHTS ON THE SHIP AT NIGHT. I’M PRETTY SURE IT IS A TYPE OF SEA BIRD CALLED A SHEARWATER.
 
 

HERE IS A CLOSEUP OF THE SHEARWATER IN HIDETO’S HANDS. I GOT TO HOLD ONE OF THESE ANOTHER NIGHT!
 

 
HERE IS A CLOSEUP OF THE SHEARWATER SITTING ON THE DECK.

IN MY NEXT BLOG I'LL INCLUDE SOME REALLY GREAT PICTURES OF A BEAUTIFUL RED TAILED TROPIC BIRD THAT RESTED ON THE SHIP ONE DAY.

CIAO FOR NOW,

ADAM

the birds!

I think thats cool that you can see the birds while you are in the middle of the ocean. how was the weather there? I see some people with winter coats on, and others with shorts and a t-shirt. what is your job while your on the ship?
